Indiana GOP – It’s OK To Shoot Copson June 12, 2012 at 10:04 am
You know how you guys are a reliable Republican vote? I’m sure there are many reasons for this. Maybe you think the GOP is “tough on crime.” Maybe you think liberals fight for the rights of criminals a little too hard. Maybe you like that Republicans are more than willing to ignore the Constitution to make your job easier. Heck, Scott Walker carved out an exception to his union busting law so you wouldn’t oppose him and he wasn’t the only Republican to avoid pissing you off.
But did you really think that would last? Have you been paying attention for the last thirty years? The GOP’s platform consists of making people distrust the government: That’s includes YOU. They’ve also spent thirty years shoving guns into the hands of paranoids and mentally ill people while telling them that the government is coming to get them any day now. These days, they’ve made it legal to
stand your ground murder people for just about any reason. Did you think they wouldn’t get around to you?
Indiana has codified that shooting a cop “entering illegally” is perfectly justifiable. They swear it’s just for times when one of you guys “goes rogue” or something. So were “stand your ground” laws and the “justified” homicide rate more than tripled. Now you’re on the shooting range too! How’s that feel? Make you feel like running out and voting Republican again? Maybe you’re starting to catch on that you’re just as expendable to the GOP as everyone else is. The more of you that get killed, the more money some defense contractor will make providing body armor and military weapons to you. And the more civilians you kill because you’ve developed a shoot first mentality of your own is more guns sold to scared citizens who will be even quicker to shoot you before you shoot them, etc. etc.
Starting to see a pattern? Distrust and violence will escalate and who does it benefit? The same people that always benefit from violence: the gun companies. You got played officers and I will bet good, hard cash that this “expansion” to the so-called “castle doctrine” spreads throughout all of the GOP controlled states.
